2021 Alumy Creek Angus Bull Sale Welcome to our 31st Annual on property and online Angus Bull Sale. We are all tired of hearing what an unprecedented year 2020 was—but how good was its finish and the start of 2021. Many areas have experienced a great grass/flood season—a very promising change to years of drought and fires. Fortunately the both the importance and value of agriculture plus food security continues to be sharply focused in the greater community. The world continues to recognize the need to feed populations and beef production continues to shine- the future very bright according to the analysts with commodity cattle bringing record sale yard prices and supply and demand pushing stock values to epic levels as producers across the country demonstrate their confidence by taking the opportunity to future proof their profits and rebuild their herds with quality premium genetics. This year we are pleased to offer a terrific draft of 51 quality bulls. The draft is an exciting selection of powerful, thick, heavily muscled carcase bulls with many of them calving ease curve bending bulls very suitable for heifers or cows. This group of bulls presents very well having only known tough seasons until our break late in November last year and being testament to the easy doing high feed efficiency productive genetics we select for in our Angus cow herd. The bulls are long bodied and strong topped with deep spring of rib, added thickness and consistent natural muscling. The AI sires of these bulls are some of the best genetics available within the Angus breed globally and in Australia. Colin inspected many the US sires and we continue to be an early adopter using outcross genetic bulls early in their breeding career with many seeing heavy use as superior sires as time progresses.

We always select to breed quality Angus cattle that can produce a profit under commercial conditions with market flexibility to target the domestic, heavy grassfed or grainfed markets. Because we retain the sisters to the bulls we sell, the mature cow size of our cattle must be sustainable in our grazing environment, which is crucial to maintain performance during tough seasons. We also apply stiff selection pressure for fertility, our heifers must calve as 2 year olds unassisted and must go back in calf quickly to produce a calf each and every year. Clients comment on the consistency, quality and performance of their Alumy Creek sired replacement females. All the bulls in the catalogue will produce this valuable type of easy keeping, high fertility replacement females bred to work hard bringing in a good calf every year. These are the quality profit traits to rebuild your cow herd after the past few seasons. We believe in using temperament, structure, EBVs and genomics as equal tools in the selection box for balanced sustainable cattle breeding and we don’t just add the EBV numbers or single trait select. Our selection focus produces cattle that can achieve extra performance kilos on grass in the paddock with the carcase potential to also excel in the feedlot.

Alumy Creek Angus—31st Annual Angus Bull Sale


We continue to embrace new technology with the sale bulls again all tested with the Zoetis HDi50K DNA genomic testing and all sire verified so have confidence with your purchase. The bulls have excellent TACE results, many with top 1–10% EBVs for the multiple traits we have selected for over the past 30 years—Calving Ease, Short Gestation Length, fast Growth, big Eye Muscle Area and heavy high quality Carcase Wt with high Feed Efficiency and Retail Yield. These breed rankings are measured against all the performance recorded Angus cattle in Australia and New Zealand, confirmation that our bulls carry the genes for profitable performance even though our environment doesn’t always allow them to express their full potential. Our bulls present in strong forward paddock condition, ready to go out and work well for you. The 2021 sale draft again includes an outstanding selection of bulls by the calving ease, big muscle maternal and carcase specialists including the sire of our 2019 sale topper Baldridge Compass, as well as KCF Bennett TheRock, and LD Capitalist 316 all great over heifers or cows. This year sees more sons by the sire of the 2020 sale topper, the moderate birth weight yet very powerful high growth high efficiency muscle and feedlot sire Freys Opportunity and Vision Unanimous both perfect to power up and add quality profit to bos indicus or Euro cow herds and two new exciting but unfortunately now deceased sires—both impressive calving ease yet curve bending heavy muscled carcase bulls Rock Creek Rancher and EF Prime Quarter.

Wish we could get more Rancher semen for our heifers and sourced the last of the Prime Quarter semen along with Texas Angus who were also impressed with his progeny’s performance. Check out the comments on each reference sire which appears under their TACE figures. All of the reference sires are quality maternal herd builders should you wish to retain female replacements from the sale draft bulls for herd rebuilding. Our quality draft of locally bred raised Tenterfield tough bulls will be offered for sale online AuctionsPlus and on property at 1pm Friday 28th May 2021 at Coldawinda, Tenterfield NSW, just 10 minutes south of the Qld border on the New England Hwy.

MANAGEMENT: All Alumy Creek bulls carry a freeze brand for easy ID in the paddock. Alumy Creek sale bulls are quiet, well-mannered cattle used to being handled on foot, with dogs, ATVs and vehicles. They are rigorously screened for their temperament, but sale day places extra stresses on the bulls and this is no guarantee they will not misbehave under the pressure of sale day. FERTILITY: All bulls have passed a physical examination and microscopic crush side semen test. GUARANTEE: All bulls are sold with a six month guarantee as a calf getter valid for six months from the sale date. The vendor must receive written notification together with a certificate from a registered veterinarian stating the nature of the infertility before the expiration of that period. Animals injured or lost as a result of accident, negligence or any disease, are not covered by this guarantee. Vendor liability relating to fertility claims will not exceed the purchase price of the animal and are limited to a credit equal to the purchase price less the salvage value which may be utilized at a future Alumy Creek sale. Talk to us if you think you have a problem. SIRE VERIFICATION and DNA HDi50K TESTING: All bulls have been sire verified (SV) and genomic HDi50K tested. They can be used to breed registered calves without further testing. The performance recording and genomic results are single step incorporated into TACE Breedplan to produce Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs). Many bulls are in the elite top 1-2% of the Australian/ New Zealand drop for Angus and Angus x seed stock. All bulls in the sale are free untested (FU) for the cattle defect genes AM, NH & DD except Lot 37 NKEQ080 who is AMC and therefore more suitable for crossbreeding in non-angus commercial herds. Talk to Lisa if you need more information.

HEALTH AND SAFETY OF VISITORS: COVID-19 social distancing and frequent hand sanitizing must occur. Visitors enter the pens of their own risk. Children under 16 years old and dogs are strictly not permitted at the sale. The bulls are known to be of good temperament under normal conditions. However sale day is not ‘normal conditions’. If you enter the pens, take note of your surrounds and be conscious of your safety. Do not crowd the bulls, or loiter in the pens. Please use common sense and be alert at all times. Do not be alarmed, but it is critical that visitors pay attention to the risks associated with cattle and the day.
